harry reid is confident they will pass the bill. reject all the amendments. so far the senators have said no to four. three more to go. shepard? shepard: wendell goler live at the white house. thanks. the housing crisis now and a dire prediction. almost half of all americans with mortgages, almost half will eventually owe more on their loans than their homes are worth. deutsche bank estimates now it will happen by the start of the year 2011. that's 25 million american homeowners under water on their loans. 48% of all families with mortgages, imagine that being under water. makes it a lot more difficult for borrowers onto modify or change their loans. and even though we have seen some positive reports on home sales in recent weeks. prices do continue to fall. we'll have more business news, including a look at the jobs market coming up in just a few minutes. police say he went on a shooting spree at a health club, then committed suicide. but now it turns out he left behind some messages. >> i wanted to continue immediately to start moving on this. i didn't realize i had that much time.
this process and that will end up with what harry reid, the democrat said a few days ago, we will get something but it may not be until the end of the year. >> yeah. the prevailing wisdom, i'm glad you brought that up, the president and democrats will get something even if it doesn't amount to a fig leaf, the stakes are too high. congressional democrats understand their political fortunes rise and fall with that of the president. we started out talking about the poll. there's probably a lot more concern among democrats in the house of representatives about those polls than there is at the white house simply because they have to run every two years and they are up again next year. i think when you look at some of the options that are on the table, it's hard to see how they are going to reconcile with the senate, the direction they are going in and the direction the house is going in in terms of public option and major components of this. it's a fig leaf at the end of the year. i don't think that works for democrats to be honest with you. >> mike, i appreciate it. in fact you set up my next conve

of cash tomorrow. senate majority leader harry reid says democrats have enough votes to assure the measure. the obama administration says the money will fund an additional 500,000 new car sales. the house passed the bill last week. >>> a ground and air search is over now in arlington. police got a call about a car break-in just before 4:00 this morning. when officers arrived five people jumped out of one car. they headed toward arlington national cemetery. cops caught one of them. four others were detain add short time later. -- detained a short time later. all of the suspects are minor. >>> not something you would expect to see just walking down the street in a city. a d.c. woman snapped this photo of a copper head snake. we'll show you that photo in just a little bit. oh, it's behind me. moments after it bit her. there it is. while walking her dog. >> here's the kicker to this story. it's not the only snake attack that people are reporting in this neighborhood. john henrehan has the details of snakes in the city. >> reporter: last wednesday evening angela bradford was walking her dog in

some very critical words for these protesters tuesday. in fact, at one point, harry reid even held up a piece of astroturf today to point out that in his opinion these are not grassroots organizers and that they are in his words phony. he said, quote, we're not going to be sidetracked by people trying to sabotage a civil process. and senator dick dur win, the number-two democrat in the senate, said for the first time in his career there have been all these phone calls to his chicago office, in his words, begging for there to be town hall meetings. he said, quote, they're interested in youtube. they want to get the image across america that somehow congressmen and senators can't defend health care reform, and he went on to say i'm not going to allow myself to get sucker punched here. so, what senators are going to try to hammer home here over the next month when they're in their home states, wolf, is that health care reform is important for all americans, not just for those who are uninsured, but they also want to convince americans who have insurance that this is good for them, that i
